napolitano, director of f.b.i., you have the head of -- director of the n.s.a., alexander, and all three have said, they said one of the biggest fears they have now are these attacks and that unless we have a sharing opportunity between government and between business they feel they cannot protect our country from these cyberattacks the way we should. it's important we act now on this bill. now, we can pass bills in the house all day long, but if the senate doesn't pass a bill and the president doesn't sign it, where are we? we were able to pass our bill last year in a bipartisan manner, and yet our bill went to the senate and it stalled. the bill didn't go anywhere. so chairman rogers and i started again, but what we said to each other and we discussed was that we need to address the issue of privacy because even though we felt strongly that our bill does protect privacy, we knew there was -- there were groups out there, especially the privacy groups, felt there was not enough protection in our bill. we rolled up our sleeves. we listened to the issues raised by the privacy groups. the admini

. >> by the way janet napolitano was testifying on capitol hill about the boston marathon bombings and she said there is no indication this was part of a bigger plot. that's a little bit of breaking news there. >> hal: no -- absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. it doesn't mean they won't be tied to other things later. there is a reason why new york and los angeles and seattle and chicago are all on alert and watching out for stuff like that. because these kind of acts are too easy to do. they are not -- they do not require a level of sophistication. the local law enforcement and fbi all across the country has foiled plots like this before and they go under the radar because they aren't the kind -- they aren't -- >> al-qaeda -- it still exists generally takes credit for this stuff. >> stephanie: that's what i mean. charlie pierce was saying that he and his sportswriter friends have said this is what it is going to be. it won't be the super bowl. it will be one of the last open events like the boston marathon. it is almost impossible to stop somebody from throwing something into a garb
security secretary janet napolitano. >> based on the evidence at this point, is there any difference between sandy hook and boston, other than the choice of weapons? in terms of intent for death and destruction and injury, no. methodology, guess. we don't know the motivation certainly behind boston. we don't know whether was domestic, international -- >> or if it was identical to the motivation in sandy hook. >> we just don't know the answer. i think it is impossible for me to sit at the table today and say they are identical, except in the effect of impact. >> as i look at the evidence that is available, you have mass destruction and violence and andghter of innocents, neither case do we note motive. the irony is, we are so quick to call boston terror, why are we not calling the man with a high- capacity assault weapon and a high-capacity magazine, why are we not calling him a terrorist? >> i don't know the answer to that question. host: bill braniff, do you have a response to that exchange? ofst: the definition terrorism is an often repeated question. it comes up and all kinds of c
muller, attorney general holder, secretary napolitano and homeland security adviser on the attacks in boston. we continue to mobilize and deploy all resources to protect our citizens and investigate and to respond to this attack. obviously our first thoughts this morning are with the victims, their families, and the city of boston. we know that two explosions gravely wounded dozens of americans and took the lives of others including an 8-year-old boy. this was a heinous and cowardly act. given what we now know about what took fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. anytime bombs are used to target civilian, it is an act of terrorism. what we don't yet know, however, is who carried out the attack or why, whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act an individual. clearly we're at the beginning of our investigation. it will take time to follow every lead and determine what happened. but we will find out. we will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice. we also know this. the american people ref
rights. here to explain is fox news judge andrew napolitano. he was finally read his miranda rights. you have to do that within 48 hours? >> theoretically miranda rights should be read immediately as soon as the person is in custody, before you ask him any questions. we don't know exactly what's happened, we'll find out, but the government told us it did not read him his miranda rights, interrogated him for intelligence, not law enforcement purposes. this is highly controversial and could affect the government's case. but at some point in that interrogation which only lasted a few hours, which apparently consisted of him writing answers because he can't speak due to the injury to his throat. at some point in that interrogation, agents, professional interrogators decided we're not going to get anywhere or we've already learned everything we can learn from him. they also have on their shoulder, breathing down their neck, so to speak, a federal rule of procedure which requires he be charged with something within 48 hours. otherwise they have to let him go. they did charge him with this comp
